Ok I don't need to ring 999, I'm pretty certain I have pluricy, pain for two weeks but steadily got worse in the last 24 hours just unsure wether to go to out of hours tomorrow or wait it out till Monday.
Thanks

Hope you feel better today, temperature normalises and Sats stay good. And if you do not feel better soon, at least the GP is open and knows your history- so please do see GP if needed.(Hug)

Thanks been back today, have tramadol, to add to the mix, temp high but sats not to bad so just got to rest and fight it off.
I'm to go back if fever gets worse but at least the GP's open tomorrow and due to see chest consultant Tuesday.
Thanks for the support

Hope the ABs get to work quickly and you soon feel more comfortable.

Home temp devices are not known for great accuracy.

Loads of fluids. Hot tea, hot choc, lemsip all great. If your urine is really dark you're dehydrated...
Hot bath, duvet on the sofa, good film/trash tv.

Well, go to Casualty!!

And although it feels like I have a fever, tempreture really low.

Argh still in so much pain sad

great, hope you're feeling better soon.

Thanks all, went to the out of hours first thing, have pluricy and chest infection, so have antibiotics and stronger painkillers.
Was lucky that one of the GP's from my practice saw me so didn't have to go through whole history.

How are you this morning? I remember your previous threads under your other name and I get why you are scared smile

Hope you are okay (((((hugs))))))

I do empathise with you but you need to think rationally. That said, I know when you're scared, it's hard to think clearly. Go to A&E and get checked out. They can't force you to stay but they may be able to give you some medication and/or rule out anything else.

Think what you would say to yourself if that person was someone you loved. If you pop along now, hopefully it won't be too busy. Please look after yourself.

You don't have to ring 999 to go to A & E, you can take yourself off there, it won't make any difference to how quickly you're seen.
It sounds like you know your own body pretty well though and NHS direct are notorious for telling people to ring 999.

yousankmybattleship Fri 01-Feb-13 23:28:34

Why post a message implying you need to go to A&E and then say you won't because of some mystery phobia? Only you know if you should go. If you're worried go to A&E. They can't force you to be admitted, but could put your mind at rest. If you think you're ok, then go to bed and see how you feel in the morning. Simples.

YellowShoes Fri 01-Feb-13 23:25:46

Thanks if gets worse I will, won't leave it till Monday now will do the out of hours,
I haven't got a very high temp, breathing a bit fast but nothing to drastic so I 'm sure I'm ok till wait till morning.

I think you're being a bit foolish about this. You know you have a longstanding problem and you have worsening pain. Are you waiting till you can't breathe? hmm

Don't be a dafty trousers - get thee to A&E and get better not worse!

Casmama Fri 01-Feb-13 23:23:13

You can't know that you are not at deaths door but I hope you are right. I'm not sure what you expected to get out of this thread as you have clearly made your decision.
Good luck.

they can't force you to stay in, you are free to self discharge if it gets to that

YellowShoes Fri 01-Feb-13 23:17:49

Thanks both I can't explain just can't bring myself to go in, I will go in the morning if no better, just realised I'm posting incognito I'm usually a large glass of something.
Unfortunately I've had the experience before with pluricy pain they will do a ct due to previous problems which means staying in. sad

you could phone your out of hours number and talk to someone about it
you do know they cannot keep you in if you refuse

YellowShoes Fri 01-Feb-13 23:10:14

Can't explain the terrified feeling of being admitted,
I know I'm not at deaths door just in a lot of pain, when I've had pluricy before I've just had stronger pain killers.
I have a very rare condition so I know if I go tonight they'll keep me in, sad

WhereMyMilk Fri 01-Feb-13 23:09:33

Definitely go then...

ggirl Fri 01-Feb-13 23:07:18

well you could get it checked out in a&e to rule out clot , then they may be happy for you to be discharged

Jinsei Fri 01-Feb-13 23:04:59

Please don't leave it - better safe than sorry. Ring 999 or go to A&E.
